A fast growing Chinese restaurant chain is preparing to open a new restaurant in Bradford's Centenary Square that will create 40 jobs in the city after agreeing a deal with the landlord, property investment firm Rushbond.
The Chinese Buffet opened its first restaurant in Bolton and has since gone on to establish seven restaurants across the North of England and Wales. The company is currently fitting out the 6,000 square foot unit, which will accommodate 180 diners and is due to open during March.
Richard Baker of Rushbond explains: "We're delighted to welcome The Chinese Buffet to Centenary Square and it's fantastic that the development is once again fully occupied. We considered several options from a number of potential tenants but we're confident that The Chinese Buffet, which has enjoyed plenty of success in other towns and cities throughout the region, has a great formula that is hugely successful and will complement the other businesses and organisations at Centenary Square".
Peter Wu, managing director of The Chinese Buffet says: "We are very excited to be opening this restaurant in a great location in the heart of Bradford city centre. The success of our other restaurants is based on our ability to offer exceptional food, great value for money and fantastic service and this is exactly what we're striving to replicate in Bradford".
The opening of The Chinese Buffet comes just two months after Bradford's City Library relocated into a striking unit at Centenary Square that houses approximately 60,000 books as well as 40 computers with the Impressions Gallery above it on the first floor. Other occupiers at the development include Nando's, Starbucks, Forsters Bistro, J D Wetherspoon and Bradford College.
Bradford Council leader Coun David Green said: "Centenary Square is one of Bradford city centre's most vibrant areas and there's no doubt The Chinese Buffet will make a significant contribution to the area and be well received by the people of Bradford".
